How much trouble would it be if, while planning to lay down that
surface, to notify the utility companies (power, telephone, cable,
whatever) and tell them, "If you have anything planned for adding new
cable/pipelines/whatever under this road, plan to do them *now* while we
have to rip up the old road to repave it anyway." Tell them that (a) that
way *they* won't have the chore of repaving and (b) if they don't take
advantage of it now then they are forbidden from ripping up anything for
at least a year after the new paving is laid unless it's for an emergency
or for something that couldn't possibly have been forseen at the time the
new paving was laid (such as a new building that needs water, sewage and
power connected to it).
